Bored of your subscription or thinking of moving to a different provider? We’ve laid out how to cancel your McAfee subscription (for UK readers) below.
How To Cancel McAfee Subscription UK
In order to cancel your McAfee subscription, you’ll need to cancel your auto-renewal. This means your subscription will continue until the end of the current billing period, at which point it will expire. To turn off your auto-renewal:
- Log in to your account on the McAfee website
- Go to “Auto-Renewal Settings”
- Turn the toggle to “off” (pressing once should do the trick)
- Click on “turn off” to confirm
- Select “Yes, turn it off”
You’ll then get a cancellation confirmation showing you’ve turned off auto-renewal.
What is McAfee?
McAfee is one of the leading online and PC protection services. Providing protection for online usage and helps guard from risks such as malware, computer viruses and phishing.
How To Stay On Top Of Your Subscriptions
As you’re here, you’re already in the process of doing this which is great to see. Staying on top of your subscriptions and periodically trimming them back can help to save hundreds, if not thousands of pounds over the course of a year. All of this for only about 30 mins work. You’ll be hard pressed to find a better return on a time investment than that!
How to find a full list of my subscriptions?
You can do this manually by going through your bank statements and tagging up the transactions you see repeating from month to month.
However, there is a better way.
Downloading one of the top budgeting apps; our favourites are Snoop*, Emma* or Plum*, will help save a tonne of time.
These apps connect to your bank accounts and automatically categorise your transactions. They will also flag your monthly subscriptions (as well as a tonne more features).
Once you have the list of subscriptions you have, you can easily cancel any that you don’t use often or don’t think you get enough value out of.
